Box of goodies arrived today.
Lets open it up and see what's inside.
LED Spotlights, well packaged.
Gloss black, good weight in these.
Very well made indeed.
Other parts which come in the box.
I'd say they are of similar quality to BMW OEM.
A couple of weeks back I had contacted my nearest dealer by email for a quote for these lights fitted, they phoned me the next day, nice bloke on the other end. £850.00 fitted - OUCH! So I ask him how much for non-fitting - £500+ (didn't catch the exact amount as I thanked him before saying bye-bye mate and hanging up).
Cost for these babies (Free P&P).
I bought them direct from the company as they were cheaper than their prices for same on eBay and Etsy, I found a code on Google and received a £10.50 discount as well.
I only want these for cosmetic reasons, I don't intend to have them wired up (did likewise with my R56) as the LED's on the car are already excellent for night driving anyway, I'll attempt to fit them myself, though there is a bit more to it with the Gen3 - requires some drilling and apparently the grille might have plastic welding on some of the clips which I hear can be a bit of a struggle to remove. If I do struggle with the job I can always drop the car off to my local mechanic.
I reckon it will be quite a while before I actually get round to doing this as the weather up here ain't ideal at this time of the year. Merry Xmas.
